Draft - Caramel, grassy hops and a slight bitterness. Clear gold with a decent white head. Caramel, resinous hops and a mild long lasting bitterness that has some grains. Nice example of a casket ESB.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 I enjoyed this Bitter beer. One of the better Bitters I have tasted. Was cool being able to take some home with me in big Growler bottles. Also the food at the brewery was very good, it is a nice little place to visit if anyone is in Younge and Eglinton area.

An old favourite of mine from when I lived nearby. Turns out it’s pretty much as good as I remember. Appearance: clear amber with foamy 3/4-inch head. Aroma: English hops and caramel. Taste: caramel, bread, with a big bitter finish. Great cask texture.

Grey Cup 2012. Sample tray. Had the Best Bitter on tap and the Best Bitter dry hopped cask. I prefered the tap. Nice copper body. Bubbly head and nice lace. Long comforting woody hops.

From growler into pint glass. Pours a lovely coppery colour with light pillowy head that dissipates fairly quickly, and light to medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a light malty flavour with a hint of hoppiness, and medium bitter aftertaste. A solid British-style bitter,

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Glass poured off a growler. Aroma was a good balance between light hops and caramel malt. Looks good with a nice copper/amber colour and some decent off-white head even though it was poured off a previously opened growler. Taste was very balanced between bitter hops and caramel malts. Solid body. Overall, a very good East Coast bitter.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Great carbonation, in keeping with an English bitter. Nice leave of hops - dry bitter leave is excellent. A great craft beer. On tap at Granite

From Henry House in Halifax. What a beautiful, easy to enjoy bitter. Creamy in the mouth, bitter end with some very light hop pronouncement as well.

On tap @ The Henry House in Halifax, enjoyed as part of a tasting tray. Slightly darker than the Best Bitter, owing to the hop oils I’m guessing. I find there is more chocolate in here, both in the aroma and palate, along with a more pronounced bitterness and pithy dryness. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.
